I always like to share news of my alma mater, Utica College, and this Friday, Olympian Erin Hamlin will address a UC luncheon audience. I had the opportunity to meet and interview Erin a few years ago, and she is a true champion!

Here are details from our sister station, WIBX:

"This Friday, Utica College faculty and students will get to hear from two-time Olympian and five-time U.S. Luge Champion, Erin Hamlin during the Athletics Spirit Luncheon. The Remsen native was just announced as the keynote speaker for the August 17 event. Organizers say Hamlin’s focus will center on encouraging women in sports and the 40th anniversary of Title IX, part of the 1972 education amendment banning sex discrimination in all school programs.

The Spirit Luncheon, which runs from Noon to 1:30 p.m., will be held in the Clark Athletic Center Gymnasium. The event will feature a buffet lunch, 2-four game UC hockey passes, 2 season passes for football and basketball games, as well as a UC bookstore promotion. Tickets are $20 and registration is required, which can be done by calling (315) 792-3053, or to register online visit: www.utica.edu/alumni.
